V.L. Smithers

V.L Smithers envisioned that foam media could revolutionize the floral and horticulture industries.

An Enduring Commitment

As a division of Smithers-Oasis, we trace our beginnings to 1954, when V.L. Smithers created the floral industry’s first water-absorbing floral foam. But it took nearly two decades before an engineered foam propagation media for plant growers became a reality — and Oasis Grower Solutions was born.

In the 55 years since, we’ve become a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of propagation media and ancillary products for the global market. From our Research, Innovation & Development (RI&D) facility in Kent, Ohio USA, we remain committed to our mission to provide innovative, sustainable, grower-driven solutions that empower growers of all sizes worldwide to succeed.
